Tim Brien to Lead Forum with Presentation on Recent Strategic Alliance with Agiliant, Inc., Expanding Managed Services and Prominence within the BTA Dealer Channel

Mount Laurel, NJ (January 19, 2012) – OKI Data Americas announced today the company’s Official Event Sponsorship of the upcoming 2012 Lyra Imaging Symposium, taking place January 23-25, 2012 at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa in Rancho Mirage, CA. OKI’s top Managed Print Services (MPS) executive, Tim Brien, will lead a presentation at the Symposium highlighting OKI’s recent partnership with Agiliant, Inc. – a Managed Network Services (MNS) provider. This presentation, entitled “MPS meets MNS”, will be held Friday, January 25, 2012 at 1:35 p.m. PST during the Lyra MPS Forum.

The presentation will provide an overview of OKI’s comprehensive suite of services for the BTA dealer channel through OKI’s proprietary Total Managed Print™ (TMP) solution together with Agiliant’s MITOS™ (Managed Information Technology and Output Services) program. Brien’s presentation will also explore the state of the MPS market and emerging market trends, such as cloud-based applications and the integration of vertical solutions.

The TMP solution and MITOS program combine to deliver dealers the ability to provide end-to-end, integrated managed network & print services solutions to their customers and to supplement their office equipment sales, lease and service offerings. These powerful offerings will generate immediate returns and recurring revenue streams for the BTA dealers, and further establish OKI’s prominence within the channel.
